PBIS Rewards’ mission is to help schools create a positive climate in which every student can learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The PBIS Rewards Service is purchased by schools, school districts, and other similar organizations to help them track and manage their PBIS initiative.
PBIS Rewards enters into an agreement with the purchasing organization that defines our commitment to protecting data and ensuring the availability of our service to the organization. Our core commitment can be found in our Platform Terms of Service. Additionally, the data we collect and track is described in detail in our Student Data Privacy Frequently Asked Questions. You should read this as well.
Subscribing organizations fully control who can use the service. In some instances, this will include children under the age of 13. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) defines what we can and cannot do with respect to users under the age of 13. Our COPPA Notice outlines our compliance with COPPA. This is updated annually, and you should read this if you have a child under the age of 13 who is a student at an organization that uses PBIS Rewards. You should also read our letter to parents which outlines our commitment to safeguard their child’s data when they are using PBIS Rewards at their school.
If you do not want to read the four documents (Platform Terms of Service, Student Data Privacy Frequently Asked Questions, COPPA Notice, and Student Data Privacy – Parent Letter), here is a summary of what is described.
